All,

I have a 2004 KIA Sedona and had to change out the alternator, but the old plastic connector had welded itself onto the old alternator, so it dissenagrated when we removed it. It is a 4 wire connector and I found this similar connector (see link below) on on ebay, but that is a 2 wire, and mine a 4 wire; but since it's an AC Delco part think mine should also be and AC Delco part.

I called the KIA dealer and there is no part number they have for it and they are only offering it if I buy the $500 entire wire harness. I'm hoping someone out there knows what part number for this.

Link to similar part:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/PT1383-AC-Delco-Alternator-Connector-Passenger-Right-Side-New-for-Olds-Yukon/124113335623?epid=1237362841&hash=item1ce5bb3547:g:wwoAAOSwrwxfP2ba

Oh yes a called 18 junk yards and walked 20 miles visiting 8 of them and only found 1 Sedona with my same engine/alterator, but someone had already cut the connector off the wiring harness, so no luck finding it that way!

Cheers!

Risk of cloned stuff but it looks like your description! Stuck myself for this assorted stuff a PITA sending back over $11.99 +any Tx where you are I'd go for that. Your call, just wire nut it on first then do right if that works CARE that it doesn't rub anything with too much wire?
Same as Double J's just the full bar link to pics are good IMO going broke at Ebay myself nothing local of the sort nor even open so screwed, Tom

Send pics of the plug or that one to seller if you wish to be certain it's the right fit and one? Ebay does allow that, Tom

All,

Think this is my part:


Link deleted


so ordered it. Looks to be the same as:


Link deleted ..... not allowed


Anyway ordered it and we'll see if it's right! Will be glad to have my Sedona running again! Will have to get an electrical diagram as I will not trust the colors to be right!


Cheers!

That link has to be made clickable - I can't even change it. When it comes just look at positions of plug to wires match to old burned one or what's left of it is what I'd do and if just chopped marked so that wasn't lost info.


IDK these cloned plugs are fine (had to use them, some come with them) don't color match the position have always for me hope for you too,

All,

OK part came in and fits perfectly, but now the delimna!

Cannot make the image system work or would show the pix as follows: Don't know how I got the previous image to upload and show, but it will not work with the 3 new images and I had to attempt upload on the "Old Wires" pix over 10 times.

The pinout for the new alternator is in Pix #1 (Pin Out)

The old wires are in Pix #2 (Old Wires)

The new wires are in Pix #3 (New Wires)

What I need, since all the wires go into the computer, is a test procedure to ID the wires so I can match them up properly and get my car running again!


Cheers!

This site is trouble for pictures for many IDK the real deal but use Google Images sometimes will copy/paste or copy/paste just the browser line for the picture it should change color pasted here.


Plugs or called "pigtails" are more aftermarket made still the exact shape, # of wires AND colors may or may not match? No joy with some,

Trying uploads again!

I notice about 80% of the entries on the "Alternator" were "Changed Alternator, but doesn't work" entries. Therefore to me,

Quote
it is obvious that since the regulator is contained in the alternator, the regulator ckt changes from alternator to alternator, by alternator model number so getting the exact pin out my alternator model number is critical and then having a test of the existing wiring is critical!
Then and noly then can a correct "match up" be used to proerly re-wire the new alternator.

Let me know how I can properly determine these 2!
